This year Röyksopp were presented with the prestigious P3 Gull award for the influence of their music both internationally and abroad. The band performed ‘I Had This Thing’ with Jamie Irrepressibles at the ceremony last year and Susanne Sundfør– who has also received the award- performed Fade Away in 2014. Watch both performances below.
Inspired by the recent chart success of a cover of a DEF artist’s track we’ve put together a list of some of our favourite covers by and of DEF artists. Featuring Robyn, Moby, Röyksopp, Susanne Sundfør & Fever Ray.
This weekend’s Glastonbury Festival saw the return of M83 after their debut in 2005. You can watch the performance in full here.
